In the Complete Illustrated Catalogue and Ormond's catalogue of Early Victorian Portraits, it is said that this portrait was given by 2nd Marquess of Crewe, 1921, but now that information appears to have been deleted. In 1921 Robert Offley Ashburton Milnes was 1st Marquess of Crewe. The reference to the 2nd Marquess is erroneous.
